Eva-Dry's Tips to Protect Stored Guns From Humidity

Eva-Dry believes that gun owners have a responsibility to safely store their firearms. This can be done by storing them in gun cases, gun cabinets, or gun safes. Although the right safe storage solution may differ from person to person, the bottom line is whichever method chosen, it must provide an adequate level of protection to prevent unauthorized persons from accessing the firearms.

Once a safe and responsible gun storage solution has been selected other items can be addresses. Firearms are well engineered devices that endure the stresses of being fired over the years. Yet, despite their strength and resilience, guns are susceptible to damage from moisture. Storage inside a gun safe can lead to condensation due to temperature changes and a lack of airflow. Luckily, this problem has some easy ways to protect firearms against humidity-caused damage. Here are some tips to protect stored guns:

  • Do not use cases or sleeves around firearms to avoid the excess moisture they attract.
  • Clean the firearm completely removing any dirt, dust, finger prints, etc. that could cause them to rust.
  • Schedule ammunition and gun checks to make sure rounds aren’t corroding or becoming exposed to heat.
  • Be sure the humidity levels are at 50% (Tip: use a hygrometer to determine the humidity level).
  • Place a dehumidifier in the gun safe to prevent condensation from forming within the safe or on your firearms.

Keeping humidity low is important for the maintenance of guns," said Matt Henson, Vice President of Business Development for Eva-Dry. "Eva-Dry offers several re-useable, compact dehumidifiers, depending on the size of your gun safe, that will absorb unwanted moisture to protect your firearms year-round.

For maximum protection against high humidity and moisture, the best thing one can do is to keep a renewable dehumidifier is inside the gun safe at all times. Eva-Dry’s mini-dehumidifiers are compact enough to fit in nearly any gun safe and yet strong enough to absorb any excess moisture.

"Eva-Dry offers several re-useable, compact dehumidifiers, depending on the size of your gun safe, that will absorb unwanted moisture to protect your firearms year-round.”

The Eva-Dry E-333 and the Eva-Dry E-500 for example, are small enough to fit inside most gun safes and can be mounted, hung or placed on a shelf for about 20-30 days before renewing. The units are cordless and battery free. Both devices use a silica gel technology that absorbs moisture; the beads can absorb many times their weight. They are rechargeable and can last up to 10 years. Additionally, they are child and pet safe using no chemicals and causing no damage to contents inside the safe. Protect firearms by using an Eva-Dry dehumidifier in gun safes to combat excess moisture!
